Grassroots advocacy for clean energy, environmental protection and healthy communities


Clean energy

We work to end harmful fossil fuel practices, shift to clean, 21st-century energy sources, and stand up to monopoly utility practices that put profits over people.

Environmental protection

We leverage grassroots organizing, community engagement, policy advocacy and technical expertise to protect the land, air and water of Central and Southern Appalachia.

Healthy communities

We envision an Appalachia with healthy ecosystems and resilient local economies that allow communities to thrive.

Protect Communities from Coal Dust!

Tell EPA to protect all of us

Coal dust and particles from open-top coal trains are a significant source of air and water pollution, yet this type of pollution is largely unregulated.



Appalachian Voices has been the region’s grassroots advocate for healthy communities and environmental protection for over 20 years, and a leading force in Appalachia’s shift from fossil fuels to clean energy and a just future.


Our work is concentrated in the five-state section of Central and Southern Appalachia.
